Happy Friday, friends! This week it’s been just slightly cooler and I swear I can feel fall coming. Confession time: I’m already burning a fall pumpkin candle. No, that doesn’t mean I’m ready to let go of summer, but part of me is so excited about the crisp leaves, cool breezes and red wine (I’m totally a seasonal wine drinker and have really stuck to whites and rose this summer). I figured it was time for another Five on Friday – all my favorite fashion finds, a Goldfish swim school recap, a house update and a few other fun picks.
Here’s my 5 on Friday, join in and share some of your favorites in the comments!
- LOFT Swing Jacket: How adorable are the sleeves on this jacket? Use the 40% off code OHYES for 40% off this beauty! I think it will be perfect for both date nights and daytime going into the fall. I love little jackets that have a feminine touch like this one.
- Goldfish Swim School Update: Shep is thriving and is THISCLOSE to being promoted to the next level! My mama heart is SO proud. He asks to go each week to his class and is so excited to see Mr. Max. At first he didn’t like his ears going under the water, but he’s gotten over that fear and now proudly goes under the water (and tells me it’s because he’s a DIBER!). Beau is my super swimmer and jumps right in when it’s time for his lesson. I’m still in there with him, and I love getting to hold him in the water and give him kisses throughout his lesson. Fun tip for other Goldfish moms – the little fish at the ceiling are super helpful when you are doing sea otter floats! Another important note — around Labor Day, Goldfish really focuses on educating families about water safety with so many end of summer pool parties and gatherings. While swim lessons can give your children valuable skills that help keep them safe around water, it never replaces water safety tips (check out this post for 3 water safety tips from the experts at Goldfish). What are you planning for Labor Day this year?
3/ Younique Mascara: My friend Jenna started telling me about this mascara and I’m hooked! It definitely beats the other brands I had been using and it’s very light on my lashes while also giving me lots of length and volume. (I got the 3D Fiber Lashes). Head on over to her page to order yours and find out what all the hype is about!
4/ BECCA Concealer: Can you tell I’ve been working on upgrading my makeup? I had been using the drugstore cheap-o concealer for a really long time, but my dark circles were still peeking through. My friend told me about this concealer and I’m hooked. Mine is the light to medium color.
5/ Living Room Updates: This is definitely my favorite room in the whole house and where we spend the most time. Here’s the first living room post I did, and since then, we’ve added some new furniture and new panels to continue adding to the comfy farmhouse vibe. I still need to find a coffee table but right now that extra space is great for the boys when they are super antsy. I found the Pottery Barn reclaimed wood media cabinet and my mom had the panels custom made for us! It’s a light warm grey linen fabric.
That rounds out my Five on Friday! Have an amazing weekend! I’m linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites and also April!
